Donna was one of best nurses I had the pleasure of working with for many years. She was a great friend. We spent many hours commuting to West Liberty together. She will not be forgotten. Deepest sympathy to her entire family.
Chuck, you & I went to school together. Years later I started working at Wheeling Hospital and had the pleasure of meeting your wife. She was a lovely lady, very kind and dedicated to her job. I am so sorry for your loss. Prayers to you and your family.
I will remember Donna for her sweet disposition, kindness and infectious laugh. She was a terrific nurse with a calming demeanor who often came on her own time to help during busy times. Donna was a very special person. Deepest sympathy to her family.
Donna was such a sweet person and great coworker. She was also a good friend! She will be missed by all that knew her. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.
So sorry for your loss. God bless.
I remember Donna’s smiling face and competence as a delivery room nurse at Wheeling Hospital. She was always a great help to me. She was a special person. I express my sympathy to her family but hope that they are comforted knowing she is with Jesus.
Donna was a very hard and dedicated nurse! She knew her job, and did it to the tee! She will be sadly missed. Chuck you take care of yourself! Condolences to the Causey family
To the family of Donna Causey:
Words can hardly express the debt of gratitude Julie and I, and indeed, our whole family owe to your special loved one. In 1996 Donna came to us as our “Special Angel” nurse at Wheeling Hospital’s OB unit to guide us through the unexpected stillborn birth of our first child, a baby boy named Louis. Sweet Donna was a caring, loving nurse and, more especially, a crucial friend at a time that was so terribly difficult for our crushed family.
Years later, our family would have the opportunity to see her again at the hospital, and to be able to thank her personally for her comfort and compassion in those dark times. She mentioned that she had been made aware that we had written the hospital administrator and was told of our thanks and most gracious feedback. She met our two sons and learned firsthand that we had indeed survived the tragic loss of our first son.
We can’t put a value on what she did for us. In a word, we’d simply say she was “priceless”. Julie and I thought you’d want to know just how much she meant to us and we are certain – to her other patients as well. Godspeed Donna!
So sorry for your loss. Donna was a great friend in high school and was in the delivery room for the birth of my youngest 2 children.
